White Bordeaux Blend - Sauternes-Barsac Premier Cru Classe
Producer Notes

The Suduiraut family has occupied this Premier Cru estate since the 16th century. The vineyards border those of Chateau d'Yquem where just a single wing of the original chateau remains. Suduiraut began seeing success in the late 19th century when it received accolades for its innovative means of grafting French vines to American rootstock to... More »

($60-$65) Medium yellow-gold. Flamboyantly ripe, complex nose combines pineapple, apricot, toffee, clove and vanilla. Hugely sweet and rich, with deep, powerful flavors of honey, marzipan and toffee. A major mouthful of wine, with great lingering sweetness. Today, this makes the Rieussec seem almost polite by comparison.

I pleaded for more attention to be paid to the great sweet whites of Bordeaux, and was rewarded by this wine's apparently being awarded the highest score by the room of the night. Certainly the 2001 Sauternes are stupendous and are just starting to be broachable. Suduiraut is wonderfully dependable. Very rich yet tangy with flavours of almonds and citrus zest. There's a lot going on here - real depth of flavour. It's sad in a way that it has not appreciated in price the way it deserves to. This wine was bought very recently for £58, topping up some bottles that had been bought for around £40 earlier.

A prodigious effort, possibly the finest Suduiraut since 1959, the medium gold-colored 2001 offers notes of creme brulee, caramelized citrus, Grand Marnier, honeysuckle, and other exotic fruits as well as a pleasant touch of oak. With terrific acidity, a voluptuous/unctuous palate, and sweet, powerful flavors buttressed by crisp acidity, it is a phenomenal Sauternes. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2040.

Gorgeous aromas of honey, passion fruit, mango and candied lemon rind. Full-bodied and ultraconcentrated, yet balanced and refined. It lasts for minutes on the palate. This has just about everything in the right place. Stunning. Best after 2009. 6,665 cases made.

Awersome, great nose, honey and pineapple. Rich with out being cloying. Reminds me why I like Sauternes. No rush, still primary nose.

Whacked in the face with cooked honey, toffee, creme brulee, freshly scooped vanilla icecream, and some coconut...with underpinnings of tropicality. Viscous and mouthfilling with a honeyed 45 second finish.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
